The first item I decided to go for was a white cotton halterneck top from Vivien of Holloway which I thought would be incredibly versatile.............I wasn't wrong!!! Here are just 3 of the looks I've sported recently......
Paired here with my faithful Stop Staring capris (another wardrobe basic), bordello genies and a BIG hair flower.
The second pic is a more jubilee inspired ensemble with my car boot 50p bargain skirt!!!
Worn here with my Tara Starlet satin hourglass pencil skirt in teal. This time I decided to tuck in the halter strap to give it more of a '50s sun-top' vibe which I think worked really well.

I'd like a couple more versions of this top.....black cotton for definite and the playing card design.
So......if you 'haven't got a thing to wear' maybe invest in a few basic pieces to breathe new life into your wardrobe. I would suggest having a good look through your clothes and you might find a few key ingredients missing that would enable you to get more wear from what you already own. More 'Back to Basics' blog posts to come, stay tuned.
